    Bar none, the best and most sobering training available. Thank you Tom & Mike for generously sharing your expert advise and extensive experience to make sure we all have fun out there and most important, come back alive! I think all 1,421 members should have been there. Jeepers, I think I need to go buy more gear... :)
